Pax Americana in the "arc of crisis"

The US involvement in the "arc of crisis" which runs from north Aftrica to the Indian subcontinent is extensive and necessry to maintain peace among the mainly muslim states of the region. The mess muslim governments have made for themselves would have a negative effect on the rest of the world if the US were not involved to bring some sanity to the situation. In the post colonial world, where the UN is incompetant to save these people from themselves, it has become the US's burden. There is hope for the region. The chinese character for "crises" is made up of two idiograms--trouble and opportunity. Perhaps the area should be renamed the "arc of trouble and opportunity."
